Simply stated, Digital Learning Day is a day to celebrate integrating technology into your teaching!

"Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day has provided a powerful venue for education leaders to highlight great teaching practice and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes.

Several teachers at HFE have already signed up their classes to participate in Digital Learning Day!

Here are some ideas of things their classes will be doing:

  • creating Lego Stop Motion Videos to retell a story
  • skyping with another class to discuss what they have learned about penguins
  • holding a Twitter Chat with another class to do a Q and A on a specific topic learned
  • creating ebooks using Little Bird Tails
  • editing videos of their own dance and music performances
  • using the green screen to create videos to show what students have learned about weather

ACS Digital Learning Day

On February 17th, there will be many visitors in all of the Asheville City Schools who are excited to see how our teachers are integrating technology into our teaching. We will have Central Office staff, ACS Board members, and community members who will be walking around the school and sitting in on the HFE Digital Learning Innovation Team members lessons.
